Annual Research Conference 2020
We are delighted that we have been able to modify the University of Northampton’s Annual Research Conference in 2020 and deliver it online. The Conference includes much of the usual format, although we’ve taken the decision to postpone the ‘Bake your Research’ competition until we are back face-to-face on campus.
The conference runs from Monday 8 June to Friday 12 June. Members of the university will be able to choose from 33 presentations, across four streams: Learning and Teaching Experiences; Sustainability; Society; Thinking and Feeling. There will also be symposia on Health, Education and Behaviour Change and on Practitioner Research: Educational Encounters, plus a roundtable discussion with the Gender Research Group. The Three Minute Thesis competition is back, hosted by BBC journalist, John Rose, alongside panel members Shalini Bisani, Matthew McCormack and Kathleen Mortimer.
The Conference will be opened on Monday 8th June at 10 am by Professor Shân Wareing, Deputy Vice Chancellor, after which keynote address will be given by Hugh Kearns, Flinders University, who will focus on staying well, and being productive in these difficult times. The conference will be closed on Friday 12th by Dr Cathy Smith, Dean of Research, Impact and Innovation.
The Conference will be hosted online via Collaborate. Members of the university will find links for each session in the conference brochure which they can access through this Unify item.
